Willing to drive a little but hopefully near HB or close? Probably install the mufflers myself but if the price is right......AND maybe have them make an X pipe...

Thanks

Try GMG Racing in Santa Ana.

They don't specialize on BMW's but I'm pretty sure they can do an exhaust install and x-pipe fabrication.

Make the trip to AAA Mufflers in LA and talk to Pepe. He is the man when it comes to exhaust work, people from all over Cali go to him and it's worth it. I've been there a few times myself. You don't want a 2nd rate job when it comes to exhaust work.

Yeah, GMG is great......I spent about $20k there last year...just think a quality job could be done for about half of what they would charge....I'm thinking any old school shop that does custom and hotrod stuff would suffice....and I could wait on it where as GMG I would need an appt and have to leave it...

If you're looking for cheap (and yes, they actually had a hotrod):
Mesa Muffler Services
2177 Harbor Blvd.
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 548-5600

I had my 1994 Honda Accord's Centre Resonator changed for $40 there. Done in 30 minutes.

Chris,

GMG is good right next to my office, but as you say they are expensive!

Try Grand Prix in Newprt Beach talk to Alex he is a good friend of mine and is very good with Wheels and installing and customizing exhaust! He did a fantastic job on making my rims, fixing my AA exhaust and installing my front splitter I have 100% trust in him..

If you go there tell him Sohrab sent u he will take care of you!

So what is Vadim up to? I've known him off and on since the early "Sho Shop" days.....last time I saw him he was at GMG but I noticed he's not there anymore...what's he doing?
